Bank Hoops Player of the Week, 6

Class A Player of the Week
Demetrius Lake  5-9  Jr  Holland: Lake is the first player of the week repeat winner this season, for any division. He made his case by breaking a 55-year old Holland High scoring mark with 50 points against Zeeland West. None of them were cheap, as Lake’s final three-pointer was the game-winner. It’s not Lake’s first erasure in the Dutch record book, as last year he broke the two-decade old single-season scoring mark.

Belleville's Davion Williams did nothing to dissuade his top three overall status in Michigan's 2018 class by scoring 26 against Romulus.
